It took a little longer to get right but judging by the sample pictures below, boy does it look like the wait will be worth it! There’ll be x3 models all featuring […]

This month’s customer review was written by Peter Alexander on the Pinnacle Neon Three Hybrid bike, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher. My old-school MTB of 15 years finally gave up.
